Special Exposure Wednesday

This year when my children asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I didn't give them a list of 'things' but rather a list of 'services'. I know they don't have much money, but what they do have is ability.

My oldest son, Chip, offered to paint the living room, kitchen, dining room and hallway for me, and he is doing a wonderful job!! Here's sneak peek:



The wall above the chair rail is a light butterscotch color, and below the chair rail is a mossy green color. The chair rail is a creamy white. He picked the colors himself and they look fabulous!

Be sure to check out all the other Special Exposure Wednesday shots at 5 Minutes For Special Needs!

Today I am thankful for all the hidden talents my children possess!

That's an awesome idea for a gift - it also takes the pressure off of everyone.
